ROBOTIS and OSRF, recently announced a TurtleBot 3 (TB3), that will cost around $500. This got me thinking about the previous version, TurtleBot 2(TB2), which was really an evolutionary approach to a creation, driven by a desire for affordability.
The TB2 utilizes a Kobuki Base, for a standalone cost of approximately $350, plus $55 for a charging station(formerly an iCreate 2 base, with an associated cost of $200 inclusive of base).
